I like desserts, but Matt LOVES desserts. Well, he loves all things food. The other day Matt told me about these cookies that his mom used to make for him. He was going on a trip soon and wanted me to make a batch of cookies to take with him. I will use any excuse to try out a new recipe! His mom sent me the original recipe and included the changes she makes to the recipe that makes them even better. These cookies were easy to make and so delicious that I had to share it with all of you. I am excited to make these for the holidays to hand out to my friends and family.
Makes twenty-two 4-inch cookies
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 cup (2 sticks) margarine, room temperature
- 1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 eggs, room temperature
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1 ½ cups of rolled oats
- 1 cup of coconut
- 1 12-ounce package semisweet chocolate chips
- 1 ½ cups chopped walnuts
Position rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees. Grease baking sheet; dust with flour. Combine 2 cups flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder. Using an electric mixer, cream margarine with both sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs 1 at a time, beating until light and fluffy. Mix in milk and vanilla. Stir dry ingredients into the batter. Fold in oats, coconut, chocolate chips, and walnuts.
Using ¼ cup for each cookie, drop batter onto prepared sheets, spacing 3 inches apart. Bake until cookies are light brown around edges, 12 to 15 minutes. Let it cool on sheets for 3 minutes. Transfer to a rack and cool completely. Store in airtight container.
Let me know if you make these cookies. I would love to hear how they turned out for you. I hope you love them as much as we do!
